I'd love to take care of and pamper your pooch but please only contact me if your dog:
1) weighs more than 30 pounds
2) is socialized with other dogs
3) at least 3 years old (exception greyhounds)
4) new clients require a meet & greet first
I invite greyhounds, sight hounds, and other breeds pending a Meet & Greet. Older, senior, and less active dogs are especially welcome. Dogs must be altered, free of fleas or ticks, current on vaccinations (including Bordatella), and licensed by Pima Animal Control or another animal control agency (new clients, please provide proof).
I have cared for greyhounds, GSP, English bulldog, beagle, labradoodle, Australian cattle dog, Airdale, flat coat retriever and standard poodles -- many but not all have been seniors.
Your dog receives 1-to-1 attention. An average day includes: morning walk, lounging on soft beds, fed twice a day (using a covered container, bring your own dog food so not to upset his or her digestive system), playtime, occasional treats (made in the USA), and pampering & some grooming (brushing, paw balm massage). No extra charge for medications, if applicable.
There is a double yard with 6-foot fence and block walls around the patio. Dogs are indoors during hot summer months and may be outside with supervision. I’m hands-on, mostly-retired. Pickup/drop-off flexible; will transport/extra fee.
I believe dogs should be treated like beloved pets and family members. My dogs have always had better healthcare than I do. I'm on the steering committee for Adopt Love Adopt Local and volunteer for Southern Arizona Greyhound Adoption, Beading Divas to the Rescue and other animal-related causes.
Upon request, I give 10% donation back to the animal charity of your choice for a minimum of 7/nights or longer stays.
Dogs make the world go round.
